The feedback is great guys! keep it coming!
Here are some more examples in response to the feedaback. I think that for very small iconic representations of a logo that you don't really have to have the text. Rather by establishing a text-icon relationship you can later imply the text with just the icon. WikiPedia does this, as do most commercial entities.
I really like the puzzle peices in the WikiPedia logo, so I wanted to try to work them into the compass card idea which we discussed yesterday. I've also played around with fonts.
Ray Larrabie has a series of fonts celebrating different countries and other things people might identify with. This one is called French Participant.
And for wv, French Participant.
This is called Hebrew Participant, but translated into Hebrew Wikitravel doesn't have an O or A to show off the characters.
Here's a goofy font called World of Water.
I like this one a bit better in that it's more graceful, that said it's harder to see from far away.
Here I'm starting to play with color, although in fact these are all shades of the same color, which can save money (and time) on getting things like business cards and letterhead printed. I'll do a real multi-color version tomorrow.
So, I have to say I really like this logo; great colors and the ideas come across very clearly. My main concern is that the puzzle-piece motif implies a closer relationship with Wikipedia than we actually have. --Evan 14:21, 27 Jun 2005 (EDT)
